-abortion bills and trying to cut nothing but pbs and food stamps and trying to get rid of meals on wheels. to read this speech you would think it came out of the white house. the fact is they're trying to take obama's rhetoric, but it is cutting the exact same policies. they still want to cut food stamps and medicaid. really, they are borrowing barack obama's lines. >> the most cynical, karl rove, i save it admiringly, he is about winning, not about policies, he believes the tax rate should be whatever it is in the tax rate in the campaign. he is getting attacked by the tea party side. he is trying to attack the so-called reasonable republicans against the nuts, rove was just attacking hannity, listen to this. >> the group that went out with the e-mails and fundraising entities, they get into the pocket of the person who owns the website or the political action committee. i am a volunteer, i don't take a dime from crossroads. >> richard, this is the fascinating current civil war in republican world, rove versus the tea party. >> i think he has done pretty well being a political consultant
negotiations, etc. and pbs has a new document documentary front line called "cliff-hanger," and they cover this. michael kirk, who wrote produced and directed "cliff-hanger." michael, when we talk about the fiscal cliff negotiations, what did we learn from those in regards to how president obama will handle negotiations in his second term? >> well, the first go around back in the summer of 2011 he and john boehner went behind closed doors met in secret, cooked up what became known as the grand bargain. he had given entitlement cuts, boehner would find $800 million in revenue and that worked well until joe biden maybe accidentlily told eric cantor the number two republican and the bile rival with boehner that they were holding negotiations, and he didn't like that. they pushed everything down at the election creating at the time the fiscal cliff which was as one person in our film called a suicide event strapped on to the economy and waiting to be detonated. after the election obama sits down with boehner. they wait until the middle of december because obama has been slow walking boehner's propo
documentary "cliff-hanger" on pbs takes us behind the scenes of the fiscal cliff drama on capitol hill. let's take a look at a clip. >> these guys are going into the meeting with the president. boehner has just been humiliated by his own people with the plan "b" debacle. and he tells harry reid to go [ bleep ] himself. >> harry reid looks up and he says, what? excuse me? and boehner says it again. >> hey, listen. senator reid and i are close friends. we've got to work together. but just like any close friends, sometimes you just need to clear the air. and we did. >> i can't imagine that happening. >> oh, gee. oh, that's never happened on capitol hill before, has it, michael? >> i was talking about between us. that's okay. >> that would never happen. so michael, take us behind the scenes. here i suspect pass is going to be prologged several times in the future. >> well, exactly right. when i look forward to the state of the union address tomorrow night, i'm looking forward to seeing john boehner and joe biden sitting behind barack obama, especially after what i learned in the last six months

. adam lanza is the subject of a front line documentary on pbs tonight. according to reporters, police investigators found thousands of dollars worth of graphically violent video games in the lanza household. >> i think he did what he knew how to do. graphically violent video games don't make you turn into violence if that's not your predisposition. but this kid had a lot going on. >> let's bring in msnbc contributor ari melber, correspondent for "the nation" and msnbc contributor goldie taylor, managing editor of the goldie taylor project. good afternoon to both of you. ari, we're learning more from these reports of a darkly obsessive behavior, possibly inspired by other mass shooters on the part of adam hahn lanza, including the suggestion that anders breivik may had have some influence. how do we focus on improving the provision of mental health services at the same time as addressing things like high capacity magazines? because it seems to me as though the mental health component has kind of been lost in the discussion more recently. >> i think it has been somewhat lost and it goes
